Titel Maulkorbpflicht in Bus & Bahn

If you want to take your dog or pet with you on the bus or train, this is no problem, as long as there is enough space in the vehicle.

The following tickets are available for dogs on the VVO:

  • Bicycle day ticket
    (1 tariff zone or interconnected area)
  • Elbe-Labe day ticket
  • Monthly cycle pass

Please make sure you supervise the animal throughout the journey. Dogs must also wear a muzzle, unless they are guide dogs for people with disabilities. Dogs must always be held on a short leash.

Animals are not permitted on seats.

The company staff will decide whether the animal is to be accepted for carriage and where it should be placed in the vehicle.

Details on taking bicycles, items and animals with you can be found in the "small print".

Hide note

Muzzle obligation: If the dog does not wear a muzzle, this will cost the dog owner a fee of 20 euros.

Cycle day ticket prices and validity

The cycle day ticket is valid up to 4am on the day following the day of stamping.

If you use the cycle day ticket in combination with the night ticket (valid from 6pm to 6am on the following day), it is valid until 6am.

Dog included: Tip for monthly ticket holders and subscription monthly ticket holders

As a monthly travel pass or subscription monthly travel pass holder, you can take your dog with you free of charge within the corresponding tariff zone(s).
